    Take all you have, start trying them, mild to harshest. Try a small spot. WET WIPE OR RINSE THE THING OFF WHEN YOU ARE DONE WITH EACH ONE.

    Either you will find one that works, or you won't. So long as they don't sit on the saddle, you won't ruin it. And the saddle is cheap even if you do, really.

    Good luck.

    Gazoome,

    As you can see from most opinions here including mine, this is not worth fussing over.

    If it bothers you that much, get the black version. Otherwise, just ride your bike and enjoy it!

    Oxy works well, for what it works on. Which is not anything (not great with grease for example). It releases sodium peroxide as the active agent, so relatively mild and eco friendly as these things go.

    A larger box of powder, not all that costly for how long it lasts, can be mixed from mild to paste strength.
    Fixed.

    I know it is common, and this example is not a big deal in the larger scheme of things, but I don't like it when it looks like I wrote something I didn't. Please correct your post so you are not distorting my words, which will save me the hassle of sending a PM to Coolhand. Thanks.

    Oxy works great on grass stains (on clothes and shoes), and on mildew on lawn furniture, to name two examples.

    Note that I bold faced what I changed in your post. No offense intended.

    My experience with Oxy has been different. For me, it never removed any stains or for that matter, didn't do anything that clear water couldn't do. Scam.

    I did not think you intended such. But it still looks like it is coming from me, after all it is a quote by "me". I've been around long enough that I have seen "quotes" come up months or even years later. I would rather not have to figure out if any such quotes are by me or not after a lag time.

    Take my name out, just leave it without an author. That would be fine with me as well. The meaning will still be clear in this thread.

    Looks to me like a couple of doses of Kaopectate before the ride may have prevented this "stain".
